Another beautiful autumn day inspired Mr. Mickey and me to enjoy a lunch date in Blowing Rock, followed by a stop at The Eseeola Lodge‘s flower-lined parking lot on the way home. The grounds of the lodge are delightful in late summer.
I’ve always enjoyed animal print, but only as an accent worn away from my face in small doses. When I wear black, I try to add another softer color near my face, such as scarves, jewelry, a sweater, or a jacket.
My very comfortable attire for the day included a sweater-shell top and a denim jacket over black jeans. The casual look was completed with a black bag, statement necklace, and animal print shoes. None of my items are new, so I looked for similar ones. Jacket – Shell – Jeans – Shoes – Bag – Necklace.
My statement necklace is by Petra Meiren, a prominent jewelry designer from Germany. Several years ago, I found it at Caravans in the Grove Arcade in Asheville, NC.
